Grand Total Revealed for Light Up a Christmas Tree Fundraiser

A huge £840 was raised on behalf of Centre 56 for our Light Up A Chrsitmas Tree fundraiser thanks to your generosity.  

The success of the campaign has helped spread awareness of the services we provide and generate money to fund the daily running of the nursery. 

A special thanks must go to Kevin Short, Chloe Brennan and all of the Regenda Homes Merseyside team for a series of projects they organised to help raise money for us - without which, we would not have beaten last year's total.

Kev led a bucket collection with his team at the City of Liverpool Football Club’s final home game of the year on 21 December 2019. Regenda Homes are also the main sponsor of the team.

Earlier in December, Chloe and her team staged a walk on behalf of Centre 56 to raise awareness about their services and were joined by several members of The Learning Foundry.

Claire Essame, Centre 56 Service Manager, said: “Thank you to everyone who donated to the appeal and shared our fund across social media. All of your money will go towards helping families access the services they need, so they can recover and thrive.”

Centre 56 were also the grateful recipients of a Christmas Gift Appeal in aid of Petrus, a homelessness charity in Rochdale, with Petrus donating 45 toys to the nursery.

Regenda Homes, Centre 56 and Petrus are all part of the The Regenda Group and this priocess highlights just how effective the Group is when it works together for a cause.

Once again, thank you to everyone who was involved and we look forward to another successful year!
